This last weekend was tough! I used to be in the midst of a juice cleanse and could not stop thinking about how much I wanted a salad the size of my face. Or grilled fish with one glass of wine accompanied by some Fro Yo with major amounts of sprinkles and pink-frosted animal crackers.

Then to make matters worse, I watched The Food Network again. These were playing Crimson Lobster commercials which nearly caused me to drool on myself. I guess you could say my cravings were pretty ridiculous; on the other hand it was probably my own mistake for viewing Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
There is very good news though: I must say i feel incredible and since I love sharing my discoveries together with you, I journaled my experience with the cleanse. I plan on publishing it sometime this week. Probably it will inspire you, too!
Okay more than enough chatting, can we reach the muffins?
I baked these the day before We started juicing plus they were completely mouth watering, moist, and filling up. Plus they’re heart-healthy and I’ve held calories in check by adding the following:
Applesauce: I replaced the usual oil in the muffins with applesauce, which helps continues them moist and gives them a tiny bit of sweetness without a ton of added sugar. I absolutely love the texture of these!
Almond Milk: I love baking with almond dairy because it offers a tiny bit of fat for your muffins without adding calories. It’s also generally fuller in uniformity vs regular milk and maintains muffins moist!
Oatmeal: There’s oatmeal both in and together with the muffin; it offers it an oaty taste and also provides fiber and protein.
WHOLE WHEAT GRAINS Pastry Flour: I opted to use whole wheat pastry flour while it’s a lot lighter than regular whole wheat grains. It can help the muffins from turning thick. You can even use regular flour or all-purpose gluten-free!
Cinnamon: Applesauce and cinnamon compliment one another perfectly and add great taste! Oh and did you know that studies have shown that cinnamon really helps to regular blood sugar? Win!
Walnuts: They’re are saturated in Omega-3 and great fats, thus they’ll help with keeping you full all morning hours long. Remeber not to be afraid of the good fats!
Blueberries: A super fruit full of antioxidants and absolutely gorgeous in muffins. These are filled with juicy blueberries that burst in your mouth!
My favorite part (besides the juicy blueberries) may be the walnut-oat streusel; it’s a little bit crunchy and sugary. I LOVE that all muffin is 172 healthy calories and packages 5g of protein; believe me, they’re filling up! Oh and theses babies are also freezer-friendly in order to grab one, reheat, and move!
I actually ate mine warm and pass on with almond butter along with a drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
